Sarah Rose: Difficult Mothers

Sarah Rose: Difficult Mothers, installation view at SWG3, 2016

The creation of a space which is awkward to navigate due to the visitors own awareness of the self is by no means accidental, Rose is intentionally creating a heightened sense of self awareness to encourage thoughts around how we all relate to our ecosystems, ourselves and other people as the exhibition text alludes to.

Mark Leckey: This Kolossal Kat, that Massive Mog

Mark Leckey: This Kolossal Kat, that Massive Mog, installation view at Grundy Gallery, Blackpool

From a giant inflatable moggy slumped against the gallery wall, to a projected animation of a rhythmically flicking black line, this exhibition brings together a number of works made by Mark Leckey over the last nine years that feature the character, and more precisely the tail, of Felix the Cat. Review by Laura Mansfield

As he speaks on the exhibition, Creed gives a clear impression that the works created for ‘What You Find’ diversely attempt an artistic investigation into the collision of art and life. Review by Emma Rae Warburton

Freddy Tuppen: Sous Sol

Sous Sol installation view

Works that exist in the public realm depend upon other factors for their contexts. The artist is forced to relinquish an amount of control, the parameters by which meaning is defined are altered and continue to alter throughout the lifespan of the work. What to think, then, about an immersive installation situated in the former porn-studio basement of a Soho gallery, run by emerging gallerists and functioning as a nightclub for a year?

Andrea Büttner: Beggars and iPhones

Beggars and iPhones, Installation View

Andrea Büttner’s spatial assemblages, which at first sight seem quite unremarkable, challenge a plethora of certainties and give rise to just as many questions. The position the artwork occupies between the intimate practice of its production and the public practice of its presentation is only one of them.

Erin Lawlor

Installation View

Erin Lawlor's recent paintings cite visual memories from childhood, the line and form reminiscent of the undefined biomorphic universes of Sendak or dr. Seuss, with a heightened chromatic range that at times seems to verge on the cartoonish or technicolour.

Whitstable Biennale 2016

 Trish Scott, Study for Medium, 2016, video installation

Part of the 2016 Whitstable Biennale’s success is the totally anachronistic nature of some of its headlining works, showcasing the ability of the festival to be both site-specific and completely unplaced. Review by Betsy Porritt

Ed Atkins

Ed Atkins, Ribbons, installation view at Gavin Brown's enterprise

Atkins has forged an extremely successful career by inserting various, slippery versions of his CGI ‘self’ bang at the centre of his operatically layered video works. It’s a trademark that’s as awkwardly, brain-crushingly present as ever in his current show at Gavin Brown’s new space in a former distillery in Harlem. Review by Helena Haimes

Cory Arcangel, currentmood. Installation view
